Not Works, but Mercy – Titus 3:5

He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy” (Titus 3:5, ESV)

This passage follows closely after this:

For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another (Titus 3:3)

It is not just that we did not do good works, but we were absolutely wicked before God saved us.
